(apologies, I'm a bit new to this stuff.)

How do I embed DOSbox running Windows 3.1 on my uploaded software, like the Windows 3.1 Software collections on this site?

You would need to add the following fields to the item after it has been created:

emulator = dosbox
Emulator_ext = zip (case sensitive, so ZIP if needed)
Emulator_start = d:\runapp program.exe (where program.exe is the program name to run)
Dosbox_drive_d = emularity_win31/win31.zip

Windows 3.1 booted up, but then went to a black screen.

FILE: https://archive.org/details/smcfs

ADDED FIELDS:
Emulator dosbox
Emulator_ext zip
Emulator_start d:\runapp colorfrm
Dosbox_drive_d emularity_win31/win31.zip

I also tried colorfrm.exe and it didn't work.

It looks like it's in a folder so you would need to try d:\runapp smcfs\colorfrm.exe

I don't recall if you can have folders in the emulator_start command when using d:\runapp. If that doesn't work - I would repack the archive to remove the smcfs folder.
